A hub for teamwork
Give your team access to the information they need, right in Office 365. Chat, content and tools are all in the team workspace. SharePoint, OneNote and Skype for Business are built in and you can open Office and other documents right in the app.
Chat, calls, and meetings for today’s teams.
Keep everyone in the know. Stay connected with chat, calls, and meetings within your team and in private or small group conversations. Schedule and join online Skype meetings with HD video, VoIP, and dial-in audio conferencing options. Share your files, apps, or desktop in online meetings and review the important moments later with transcriptions of recorded content.
Customizable and extensible.
Tailor your Teams workspace to include key cloud services, explore data, and get updates from the apps your teams use every day. Create custom channels based on work streams and topics. Pin commonly used files and websites for easy reference. Add bots that work on your team’s behalf. Build custom integrations to your existing business processes with the Teams developer platform.
Enterprise security, compliance, and manageability.
Microsoft Teams provides the enterprise-level security, compliance, and management features you expect from Office 365, including broad support for compliance standards, and eDiscovery and legal hold for channels, chats, and files. Microsoft Teams encrypts data at all times, at-rest ad in-transit, and includes multi-factor authentication to enhance identity protection.
